Test Kitchen Tip: To prepare Cornish hens, remove giblets from cavity; rinse and pat dry. Place Cornish hens on cutting board breast-side-up with open cavity facing you. Using poultry shears or kitchen scissors, cut through the entire length of the breast area. Flatten Cornish hen by pressing firmly down with both hands so it resembles one large flat section. (Or ask the butcher where you shop to split and flatten the Cornish hens for you.)
